  3. Modeling Spin Test Using Location Specific Material Properties

    SBC: Scientific Forming Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF08T013

    Jet engine disk components are increasingly subjected to higher operating temperatures. To meet the demands of increasing thrust and higher operating temperatures, a newer generation of nickel based superalloys such as LSHR, Alloy 10, Rene104 and RR1000 are being processed with dual microstructure distributions. Fine grain, high strength, fatigue resistant bore properties are contrasted with co ...

  4. Development of Multi-Frequency Multi-Scale Radiation Transport Modeling

    SBC: Prism Computational Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF08T020

    The objective of this proposal is to develop advanced radiation transport modeling techniques that accurately and efficiently treat transport in media having widely varying optical properties; in particular, hot gases and plasmas with optical depths ranging from the optically thin to the optically thick regimes. We will develop a hybrid diffusion-Monte Carlo (HDMC) model that efficiently transpor ...

  7. Biofuels Production From Nonedible Bio-oils

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: N09T034

    The challenge has been set to meet Navy’s renewable fuel standard using advanced biofuels. Microalgae, along with other future fuel crops, must be aggressively developed now, not later. Recent dramatic demonstrations with algae based biodiesel and biojet show that it is no longer a question of algae being suitable as a natural source of oils that can be refined to produce biofuels. Rather, it is ...

  8. Probabilistic Prediction of Location-Specific Microstructure in Turbine Disks

    SBC: Scientific Forming Technologies Corporation            Topic: N10AT028

    While there are established methods available in determining the fatigue life of critical rotating components, there is still room for improvement for better understanding and prediction of life limiting factors. Improved risk assessment of jet engine disk components would require probabilistic modeling capability of the evolution of microstructural features, residual stresses and material anomali ...

  9. Platform Li-Ion Battery Risk Assessment Tool

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N10AT014

    Modern warfare is becoming increasingly dependent on high technology and the means to power it. Lithium-ion batteries are a popular power choice due to high energy density and long charge hold. Unfortunately Lithium-ion batteries also have some distinct disadvantages including the possibility of catastrophic failure. This is of significant importance when the battery failure may take place in clos ...

  10. Probabilistic Prediction of Location-Specific Microstructure in Turbine Disks

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N10AT028

    Thermo-mechanical processes of turbine disks have been progressively improved to meet microstructural requirements tailored for advanced, sustainable high temperature performances. However, the chemistry of typical Ni-base turbine disk alloys is very complex, and yields a variety of phases and microstructural anomalies under different thermo-mechanical heat treatments. These microstructural hetero ...
